Ball Hip Release

Primary Muscle Group: Hips

Muscle Groups Worked in This Exercise:

Preparation: Sit on the ball with both feet flat on the floor. Extend your arms out to the sides at shoulder height.

Breathing: Exhale as you tuck, inhale as you release.

Execution: Tuck your tailbone in and begin to circle your hips in a clockwise motion as you exhale. Release your tailbone and inhale. Repeat this clockwise motion for 20-30 seconds and then change directions for another 20-30 seconds.

Comments: Try this one first thing in the morning; it gently loosens up your hips, warms up your lower back and gets you ready for the day.
